The fledgelings are three young fairy triplets who are learning how to fly. It takes time to get the hang of it and to figure out how to balance on slippy, bouncy dandelion stems. As they have fun and help each other out they giggle and laugh at each others clumsy attempts.
This sculpture was as created as an exhibition piece for Trentham Gardens and designed to put a smile of peoples faces. It was also designed to represent helping each other through tough times which certainly resonates today.
